Families will never get bored in this popular corner of Big Sky Country that smiles with the openness of the West and offers some of its best scenery. Tucked in northwest Montana, the Flathead area lures golf enthusiasts with its eight courses, where the “birdies” are eagles and tundra swans. Kids love Flathead Lake, ringed by mountains, with 124 miles of shoreline, thirty-two islands, and enough fishing to last all summer. Take a boat ride to Painted Rocks to see the petroglyphs left by the Blackfoot Indians, and picnic on Wildhorse Island, a state park where deer and sheep graze. The Flathead area also has sailing, hiking, white-water rafting, and dog sledding, as well as the scenic Waterton/Glacier International Peace Park.
